Why waste this incredibly warm December weather. Walk the beach! That’s what I did for my Artist Date this week.
The Artist Date is one of Julia Cameron’s basic tools or remedies for getting the creative juices flowing.
The Artist Date is a once-weekly, festive, solo expedition to explore something that interests you. It is opening yourself to insight, inspiration and guidance. It is a block of time, maybe two hours, especially set aside and committed to nurturing your creative consciousness, your inner artist. The Artist Date is a way of funding the creative reserves which we will draw on in fulfilling our artistry.
“In order to have a real relationship with our creativity, we must take the time and care to cultivate it.” p.20 The Artist’s Way
“An Artist Date is wooing your own consciousness.”- Julia Cameron
